Paps – Freetown Girls
Street Talent Productions release their debut single on 11th April 2011, with Paps “Freetown Girls”.
Freetown Girls encompasses elements of hip-hop as well as dance-hall reggae, all done in the unique Freetown styles synonymous with Street Talent Productions – around one of the most catchy hooks you’ll hear this year.
Paps is the founder of Street Talent Productions, and produces music from the incredibly difficult environment of Freetown, Sierra Leone, where recording time costs most than his usual living expenses for a period of months. As a stark example, Paps and his friends and fellow artists live on a budget somewhere in the region of $1 to $2 USD per day – around the cost of this single, in fact!
About “Freetown Girls”
“Freetown Girls” is a track which captures the spirit and energy of Paps and his fellow Street Talent Productions artists well. The track is upbeat and cheerful, and even references Bill Gates, while going some way to explain the passion Paps and his contemporaries feel for the ladies in Sierra Leone’s capital, Freetown.

Help Promote Paps “Freetown Girls”
As hinted above, Paps, and Street Talent Productions, have very little promotional budget (read none at all). This website and all MP3 versions of Street Talent Productions singles and albums are put together by a group of friends in the UK and, because the cost of digital distribution and promotion are so low, this donation of time means that every 60 or so singles sold will provide enough cash for studio time for more artists in Sierra Leone to record new work.
You can help, simply by purchasing Paps “Freetown Girls” between 11th and 16th April 2011 from the above sources, and by encouraging your friends to do the same.
So, to help promote Paps “Freetown Girls” what we’d like you to do is share this page with all of your friends by email on Facebook on Twitter and on your personal blogs and websites. Then, between 11th and 17th April 2011, simply return here, or visit Amazon direct, and order this track. If you and just one of your friends does this, the chances are, you’ll be helping Paps to earn the dollar a day he needs to continue supporting himself and other artists pull themselves from the streets of Sierra Leone through their art.
